Lots of Gorgeous & a Giveaway Too :)




Morning sweet peeps and hope you are all OK today.

It's time for a visit to the Papertake Weekly challenge and this week our theme is

One Paper Taker

so you just need to use one type of design paper.

This was a bit of a challenge for me cos I usually use 2 or 3 or sometimes more.
But we got there and this ....


.. is what I did.

The image is from one of the new  Lili of The Valley Sketch pads. This one is Sketch Pad Set 7-Just for Girls.

This is the first one I've used and I can see why they are so popular - handy doesn't come close, plus they are a joy to use as well :)

I coloured this sweet little Miss with Copics in the following colours -

Skin -  E000, E00, E11, E13, R00, R02
Hair - E35, E39
The rest - C00, C1, C3, G0000, G000, G00, G21, V000, V06, V12, V15, V17

The paper is from a Promises 8x8 paper pack.
Peeps they are out of stock at the mo over at the shop BUT don't despair because they are due in very shortly (about 10 days or so) so you can get your mitts on them then.

Gorgeous aren't they!!!


And speaking of gorgeous, I've had my eye on one of these bad boy La La Land Heart Banner dies for ages but they are so tricky to get hold of but thanks to my sweet LOTV teamies Anne and Dena, we managed to get one, yayyyy.

And it is just as fab as I thought it would be.
Thank you thank you THANK YOU sweet friends xxxxx

I also used a Martha Stewart DECO FAN Shells Punch Around The Page punch and  a Spellbinders FLORAL OVALS Nestabilities die.


How totally beautimous are these blooms!!!

I used a mixture of Wild Orchid Crafts roses along with ....

Floribunda Roses Antique Lilac Mix      Mixed Dahlia Marshmallow Mix

... these from The Ribbon Girl and if you think they look nice in the pics, wait till you see them IRL :)

The pics are linked but they are  Floribunda Roses Antique Lilac mix and Mixed Dahlia Marshmallow mix.
I also added a couple of
White Beaded Sprigs and a cheeky little sentiment tag from the LOTV Set 24-Sentiment Tags set.



I finished off the card with some Liking Lilac Pearls from The Ribbon Girl.
Did you notice that this card is a bit of a rarity for me as well because there isn't any ....... ribbon!!!

It's practically unheard of!!!


So that's my card done.

Now who fancies a gorgeous giveaway then?

Well if you do, all you have to do is leave a comment and your name with Mr Linky and I'll announce the winner next Tuesday.

This month my gorgeous giveaway which is sponsored by Mary and Andrea at The Ribbon Girl is .....

FloribundaRaspberry dahliaeasternspice

... a pack each of the above new blooms - Floribunda' Raspberry Ripple Mix and Mixed Dahlia 'Eastern Spices'.

Thank you girlies for these lovely goodies and good luck to everyone who enters this.

There is also another Ribbon Girl giveaway, and .....

... a pink one at that :)
You can read all about it
right here.

Right I'm off to see what the day has in store for me.
Enjoy your day whatever you are doing and I'll see you back here tomoz for our weekly transatlantic trip to the jolly old US of A.  But today my thoughts go out to our friends in Boston -  I do hope that everyone is safe and well xxx.  Isn't it just awful that we have to share the planet with people that can do a such a thing.

I do not have words to describe how I feel about these low lives.

Huggiest of hugs to all xxx

Don't forget to leave a comment and your name with Mr Linky if you want a chance to win my gorgeous giveaway :)

Love the heart banners!
I can't believe I had missed the LOTV sketch pads. Great when you like a stamp design but clearly know you will only use it once or twice... I love all LOTV stamps and it's so often hard to choose!
Thanks for a chance at your giveaway, those flowers are fab.
